Architects Push for Clearer EPDs with 2030 Challenge

The promise of a “nutrition label for building products” has seemed within reach for some time now (see “The Product Transparency Movement: Peeking Behind the Corporate Veil”). But it’s not yet within the design community’s grasp despite the increasing availability of environmental product declarations (EPDs) and health product declarations (HPDs).

Architecture 2030 and Cannon Design are hoping to change that by developing a more readable format for EPDs. They are asking building professionals to take a survey to aid development of a new template that will make life-cycle information more useable in everyday practice.
